Unique cloth book by a watercolourist and musician containing with each spread the lyrics, simple score, and a large illustration of a traditional rhyme, all in flat lime green, magenta, and Kelly green. Jingle Bells on front and back, O Where o Where Has My Little Dog Gone, Hot Cross Buns, Nut Tree, Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Lavender's Blue, Johnny Is Too Little, and Fast Asleep (Fais Dodo, translation),

A beautiful printing job, with clear details in flat stencil-like illustrations, somewhat like Slobodkina's. Even the signatures on the staffs are exact, the woman's glasses, the telephone cord. The scenes, clothing and details are contemporary (1940), following the Scott/Bank Street philosophy, and the people seem to convey a lot of character and movement in this unlikely medium. . Scarce outside of library special collections.
